Classic TV in a classic sense
Yes, there is general murkiness but the performances are superb. H. Bogart plays Mantee
with perfection as he did in the play (over 20 years ago) but this time is a more tried convict
Henry Fonda does an excelent job as Alan, Lauren Becall performance is worth watching as well as the support roles of Warden, Hartman (Emment from Andy Griffth show) Ms. Schaffer(before Luvly in Gilligan Island) and Richard Jackel is always menacing. Kudos to all and thanks to the uploader.

What a beautiful story!
Thank you to whoever uploaded this! Yeah, the picture was a little murky, big deal. The performances from these fine actors made all the murkiness disappear! And what is this I see? Natalie Shaefer from Gilligan's Island? Amazing performance! Jack Warden... I've always liked him as a character actor. So believable in everything he does. Henry Fonda made Alan come alive! And of course, Bogie has his role as Duke down pat! I could watch this again and again!
